Khadija Shaw Signs Two-Year Contract Extension with Manchester City W.F.C.

Jamaica Reggae Girlz captain Khadija “Bunny” Shaw has inked a two-year contract extension with English women’s football club Manchester City.

Shaw joined Manchester City in June 2021 on an initial three-year contract following the conclusion of her contract with Bordeaux. Shaw netted her 50th goal with Man City on Saturday during the club’s end-of-season match against Everton and received City’s Player and Goal of the Season awards.

Saturday’s match concluded the 26-year-old’s arguably best season at the club, and City has described her as being in scintillating form. Shaw was dubbed the highest-scoring player across a single season for Man City in March and has scored 31 goals in 30 appearances in all competitions.

Following her performance over the 2022/23 season, the St. Catherine native’s contract extension comes as no surprise, and Manchester City and Shaw announced her lengthened stay with the club on Tuesday.

Football fans were first teased with a clip of a rabbit on Instagram, eluding to Shaw’s nickname “Bunny”.

The Club has since released multiple promotional photos and videos with the footballer. Speaking on her new two-year extension, Shaw expressed that Manchester was a second home to her and explained that the club was ideal for her future improvement.

“I enjoy the way we play, and I’m at a stage now where I understand the way we play, and I can only get better and grow [ … ] I think here at City is the perfect place for me. I put all my effort and time on the pitch, and obviously, for the position I play and the quality I have around me, I know I’m going to be in positions to score goals,” Shaw stated.
